The Howarth S20 model oboe is an intermediate instrument designed for the student player.
It features some more advanced oboe keywork options than the S10 model, but is still significantly lighter in weight than our professional models. The keywork is all covered hole to make it easier for younger players and those with smaller hands to navigate the full range of the instrument.
An ideal upgrade from the Howarth Junior Oboe or S10 model, the S20 model will take student and advancing players up to Grade 8 standard.
